2019 Wade In Workshop

Missed the session on October 19th? We’ve scheduled a repeat for November 16th!

Wade In, our newest team training workshop, is a FUN way for individuals/teams who are new (or next to new) to learn more about Destination Imagination, and gain a basic understanding of important aspects of Destination Imagination:

  • Learning to Fail
  • Interference
  • Collaboration & Compromise
  • Teamwork & Team Building
  • Dissecting & Understanding the Challenge
  • Instant Challenge

Throughout this workshop, students will participate in enjoyable hands-on, interactive learning sessions, led by veteran Team Managers and DI alumni. Team Managers can observe, take notes, and ask questions about assisting the team through their DI journey.

Wade In is designed for competitive teams. It moves participants through topic-specific sessions to help newer DIers understand the basics of DI, and give them a foundation to build upon throughout the season. Teams and their Team Managers are kept together, so they may remind each other of Wade In skills and discussions as they encounter speed bumps during their DI journey. We believe offering DI basics to participants and their Team Managers together will help everyone enjoy their first DI season.

Where: Amherst Middle School, 14 Cross Road, Amherst, NH.
Who: New (or next to new) DIers and their Team Managers (competitive teams only).
